Dirty college trick!

I'll be getting back to my 'how to deal with professors' guides veeery soon!

Today's a quicky post, as I'm getting ready to drive to the other side of the island - two hour or so trip, each way, joy! With a toddler locked down in a carseat who's hard pressed to entertain himself in ways other than screaming in rage & sleeping, it makes playing Desert Bus sound like heaven.

So, you're all ready to sign up for college classes - however, you run into a problem! One (or more) of your ideal classes are full already! Goddamn, this throws your whole schedule out of whack. So, what now?

  1. Sign up for some other classes. Hopefully they're on your first tier of importance, or at least second. If the following steps don't work out, these are your classes for the semester, tough ****.
  2. Find out when tuition is due. You want to pay before this date.
  3. Pay your tuition ASAP.
  4. Check the online class registration site for the classes you'd rather have, daily, & try to snag a dropped seat.
  5. Time for the dirty trick! On the day tuition is due, sign into your classes registration site just before midnight. At midnight, those who haven't paid will be dis-enrolled from their courses. Sucks for them! Check your ideal courses, & snag those seats if they're open.
I've had to utilize this before, & while I feel some pity for those who lose out, my evil villain side chortles in a sinister manner. Till next time!

  21. Ha! I've never thought of doing this. I usually attend the class I'm hoping to get into and talk to the professor. There will be at least a couple people who don't show up, and they sometimes get kicked from the class roster.
